Do you think if I just didn't turn on any lights one night they will go to bed early and I can have an early night?
Fortunately we had good friends who lived 5 minutes away and had power. They gave us some warmth and a hot shower. They even loaned us their generator. Another lesson learned, must buy a generator.
The day Sandy finally left my husband called us to look in our backyard. We saw over a dozen wild turkeys roaming around and eventually they headed back to the woods. Pretty amazing sight!
